Best Torque Upgrades
Review Videos

A big part of winning races isn’t just how fast you can go, but how quickly you can get off the starting line. So, when you’re on a mission to collect the checkered flag, you want to make sure you have your ride set up with the best engine upgrades. There are several modifications you can make that upgrade your engine’s torque. But, some modifications are more worth the time and money than others. When upgrading your engine’s torque, you’ll notice the biggest gains when you upgrade your ride’s air intake and exhaust system.

K&N FIPK Air Intake

Boosting Torque with an Air Intake

Performance air intake systems are designed to force feed huge amounts of air to your engine. And, more air equals more power. Choose from several popular styles, like a cold air intake. A cold air intake, like the K&N Cold Air Intake and the aFe Cold Air Intake, draws in the coolest air possible, helping you get off the starting line quicker and gain more speed around the track.

Flowmaster Exhaust Systems

Increasing Performance with an Exhaust Upgrade

While upgrading your intake system alone will deliver massive boosts in torque, the best results will come when you couple your performance intake with a performance exhaust system. When you upgrade your stock pipes and exhaust tips with one of our powerful cat back exhaust systems or dual exhaust systems, you’ll notice huge gains in power and torque. So, you can get ahead of the pack and stay there.

Choosing the Top-Rated Brands to Boost Your Vehicle's Performance

Whenever you modify your vehicle, you want to make sure you choose brand names you can trust. While there are a lot of imitators out there, certain brands have earned a name for themselves in the performance parts industry, so you can be sure you’re getting high-quality parts that last. For instance, choosing a Magnaflow or Flowmaster exhaust is one of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the most power from your new exhaust system. And, when it comes to your air intake system, you’ll want to stick with names like K&N, aFe and Volant.
